Almost one has returned from Tibet Months, it may be that the content of the circle of friends is too eye-catching, so many friends are privately messaging my self-driving Sichuan-Tibet line strategy, cost, driving experience, car model, high anti-reflection and other issues.
This time I will talk about the several ways I know how to enter Tibet from Chengdu:
Since you choose self-driving, the choice of car is very important. The Sichuan-Tibet line is a very mature self-driving route. Various supplies along the way are abundant and there are also many car repair points. , You can reach Lhasa by motorcycle, but the road is still relatively dangerous, and the speed must be controlled by self-driving.
Carpool carpool trips, reception of travel friends from all over the country, the cost ranges from 3500 to 6000 per person (without board and lodging), Twelve one car is the lowest official price, the difference is whether it includes photography, go straight 318 or turn to Daocheng or Seda, Factors such as the number of days and the number of people. The advantage of carpooling is that it is safer to have a lot of people. Everyone is on the road together, playing together, talking and laughing, and feels like a confidant. The disadvantage is that the number of people is not so free. You have to cooperate with a large team. When driving, there are procrastinators, and people who do things may appear. This is also a matter of luck, and there are also people who break up in the middle of the team. If there are one or two people, this is recommended. I also choose to carpool this time. Fortunately, our team leader is also a photographer and brought a drone to record the beautiful scenery for us throughout the journey;
Rent a car by yourself, the cost of renting a car is higher, and the daily rent is cheaper than 300, expensive It’s just over a thousand, plus the gas fee, and the most hateful repaying the fare in other places, it’s about 5,000, adding them together, If there are one or two people, the cost is still quite high. At the same time, the route is unfamiliar and risky for the first time to take 318. You may also miss some beautiful scenery. If a few friends share the cost together, it will be much better, but it is important The point is that in this way, there must be a person to lead the team and route planning, and an old driver must be the lead driver.
4. About Companion
There are many people who bring their own cars to Tibet on the Sichuan-Tibet line. This kind of travel friends will usually send posts to bring one or two people to share the cost. This method is the most Affordable and the lowest cost, but it depends on luck, and the car owner will also pick people. Some only bring girls, some have to talk for a few days to see if they are right tempered, and some are because of official business. Take it at a price, but you don’t have that freedom to play along the way, because the owner doesn’t want to play in a hurry.
Carrying equipment:It’s best to bring a backpack and not a suitcase. It feels like a backpacker and does not take up space; if you take a photo , It’s best to have a SLR. I also bought a Xiaomi Mi 10 (100 million pixels) and a handheld gimbal. Although it is convenient to take photos with a mobile phone, the pixels and functions of the mobile phone are still limited; if you are clothes, you should bring all the clothes in all seasons. , The plateau weather is experienced in the four seasons every day. Try to choose brightly colored clothes, take pictures and look good, shoes are sports shoes, if conditions permit, a pair of kicks is not bad, it is also excellent; other electronic equipment depends on your own technology; You also need to bring some common medicines:cold medicine, anti-inflammatory medicine, and diarrhea medicine. You can buy a bottle of oxygen on the road if you are worried about your high reaction. If it is not particularly bad, it is best not to use it; it is best to prepare a few prayer flags and wind horses on the road. Pray for family and friends.
Time and cost :Traveling in Tibet, you must have plenty of time, don’t be in a hurry, half a month is the best; now that you are already on the road, don’t want to return home for the time being, enjoy the blue sky and white clouds, snowy mountains and meadows along the way, good and bad memories are both good and bad. precious.
The cost depends on your own control. There are dozens or hundreds of accommodations. Noodles or yak pots, how many souvenirs to buy, etc. There are many online guides The cost is high. Although there are low and peak seasons, you have to bargain. Personally, I feel that 10,000 yuan per person is enough. With the purchase before departure, He and I all counted down to less than 8,000 per person. After playing for 15 days, it’s good to think of yourself as a poor donkey.
write at the end :Tibet is a dream. It is a dream that will become addictive if you do it. Although I have visited Tibet twice, I have been to most places in Tibet, but I still often dream back Tibetan area, dream of returning to the plateau, I like it and love the Belief, I like the temples there, the prayer flags that flutter in the wind, and the quiet and immaculate Holy Lake, I like the snow-capped mountains surrounded by clouds, and of course I prefer the feeling of crossing mountains and wading water and everything in the world is on the road.
If one day, when the soul cannot catch up with your own footsteps, you will come to Tibet to have a look. It will tell you a lot of reasons to slow down.
